Autumnal Celebration, Part 3

This is the weekend for the Big Autumnal Festival. It is our favorite fall festival. I blogged about it last year too. The kids were super excited. And it was a perfect fall day - not too cold/windy/bright, etc. It was sunny with just a slight chill in the air. We got there, listened to music, looked at what the artisans were making, went in the Nature Building, did bubbles, pumpkin bowling and pumpkin bobbing, ate s'mores and drank hot apple cider, and we decorated pumpkins. We had a VERY fun day.

That looks like SO much fun! Where is it? I didn't even know there were covered bridges around here.

Sugar Grove Nature Center. The covered bridge is small - and only for walking across, but still neat. They have a fall celebration and a spring celebration. We've been going for 3 years, and we LOVE it. Makes me really feel like it is fall.
